About the Instructors

Bhante Sujatha

 May you be well, happy, and peaceful.    

When Bhante Sujatha was 10 years old, he told his parents he would  throw himself off the bridge into the river below his childhood home in  Peradeniya, Sri Lanka, if they did not let him become a monk. Since that  time, he’s remained just as certain and determined to live a life  dedicated to adding more love to the world and helping people heal their  wounded minds.

Bhante has always known he was born to serve humanity and he wakes up  everyday committed to this noble cause, teaching meditation and helping  people access the deeper parts of themselves so they can feel radiant  joy and peaceful happiness. With a single robe and some leftover food,  Bhante left his home country and eventually found his way to America,  where he learned a new language and culture and discovered the aching  desire people have for a more meaningful life.

    

In a old leaky church basement, Bhante was given a small room to  teach meditation. The first night, two people showed up. A decade  later, The Blue Lotus Temple is a world-renowned Buddhist temple and meditation center that serves  thousands of people locally and even more all over the world, under  Bhante’s leadership as abbot and spiritual director.

Bhante weighs in at 85 pounds, and fifth graders often tower of him,  but make no mistake: This man is a powerhouse of focus, energy, and  determination. Bhante leads more than 380 meditations a year, for which  he travels hundreds of thousands of miles, often walking off a plane and  onto a podium within minutes. He speaks to colleges and universities  across the world, leads small group retreats, and consults with  corporate giants, teaching them all that love is the way and peace is a  constant practice.

Bhante’s humanitarian work spans the globe and most recently oversaw the re-fitting of five hospitals with significant need. In  2013, Bhante Sujatha was awarded the highest honor within his lineage,  as a recognition for the incredible impact he’s made to spreading  Buddhism across America, being named the Chief Sanhga Nayaka of North  America.

Nancy May

Yoga has been in Nancy May’s life for over 19 years.  She began  practicing in 1999, learning about yoga by following Cyndi Lee’s OM yoga  in a box CD faithfully 6 days a week for two years.  She was hooked and  moved to California to expand her knowledge and learned from many  inspirational teachers.  Her favorite yoga instructor is Seane Corn and  she has attended Seane’s workshops whenever she can.
​Nancy moved back to the Chicago area in 2003 and founded her studio,  Yoga From The Heart.  She attended yoga teacher training and became  certified with the Yoga Alliance in 2005.  Nancy has 300+ hours of  training.  She specialitzes in Hatha Yoga and balancing you physically,  mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.
Nancy begins each class by having you set a personal  intention, breathing, and meditation.  She teaches from the heart and  believes yoga is a personal experience for every student.  Her wish is  that each of you finds a moment of peace during their yoga practice,  which is sometimes elusive off the mat with everyone’s hectic lives. ​​ Nancy’s style of teaching is very heart-felt and is primarily gentle to  all-levels flow.  Her students can expect to laugh and relax as they  share time on the mat.  All students are welcome from beginners to  advanced.  Nancy is known for her yogalicious savasana!  This is the  last five minutes of class, in which students lay on their mats and  relax to soothing music and her guided mediation.  Students leave the  class feeling calmer, stronger, physically and mentally. Nancy loves to  share her yoga practice in various locations, including yoga studios,  homes, schools, corporations, and adult living communities.  Her passion  for yoga has no bounds. She loves teaching retreats and has hosted 20  in various locations (Illinois, Wisconsin,  California, Michigan, Costa  Rica, Jamaica and Belize).
Nancy believes yoga is available for everyone and meant to be accessible to everyone at every stage of your life!
